Bingo!

I suppose we can't get a refund on ROTHC either.

Such bad business ethics from EAware. Shame on you.

You could at least have made a tunneling option available for us to reduce the lag on the NA servers.

Stupid us for wanting something, gave you the chance to kill our servers for good.

I'll be waiting for ESO now.
Dont wait, At least if they see you do it now, they can determine how much they have lost and still have time to change their decision.

If you wait, and they do it, they wont go back on it.

Yeah it's shame that the APAC community will be remembered as the group that coordinated and got together and formed a solution that got shat on by Bioware after 8 months. But you 2 are the smartest in the room.

You have got to be %*&king kidding me. Most of us only rolled on Gav Daragon because Dalborra was full.

( I would rather stay were I am on Gav Daragon that move to Begeren Colony )

(( I would rather move to a PvP server than move to Begeren Colony ))

((( What the *&^k do this brackets mean anyway? )))
'Disappointing' is not a valid criticism.

I'm seeing a lot of people here trying to speak on behalf of everyone else here. Firstly I'm seeing people from dalbora saying there's no population problems. Try playing on gav daragon if that's the case and see what it's like to be in group finder for hours at a time during peak times without a pop.
For the people complaining about ping times - Like many people I played on a US server for several months before apac servers even existed and I never remember having a big problem with ping. Only reason I moved to the APAC servers when that option presented itself was so I could play on a server with people in the same timezone. Perhaps ping an issue is if you're hardcore pvp but then again hardcore pvpers have a habit of forgetting that the game doesn't revolve around pvp. I had to laugh at the people saying they'd go back to wow because of ping. Wow as far as I'm aware has never had servers physically hosted in australia. Their apac servers are hosted overseas so the ping is no different from their US servers. And considering how much that game has sucked since cataclysm I'm not interested in going back there.
My only problem with this announcement is how long it's taken. Promises about action began in the middle of last year which is about how long ago the NA servers were merged to fix their population issues. Should have just done ours back then rather than the whole 'wait and see how FTP pans out'. I wish we had a choice of servers to go to. There's more than on RP server for instance and I'd rather go to the one that the people on my old server ended up on rather than just being shifted on to a particular one.
